His mother was well over 40 at the time of his birth, and his was a solitary childhood spent in a large garden. Here he explains how his days spent watching bird, beetles and wild creatures around his home engendered in him a lifelong love of nature.His years at prep and public school, at Oxford and in the army are all vividly described, and their influence on the recurrent themes in his writing ofbattle, leadership, friendship,bullying, solitude and longing made plain.
